Eulogy of Margaret McShine whose funeral was Saturday, July 4 at the chapel of Clark & Battoo, Park St, POS. This was streamed live by her daughter Dale who lives in New York.
Margaret McShine was a woman of high standards who believed that people should strive for perfection and be passionate in that pursuit. She crocheted, knitted, tatted, made professional drapery, sewed by sight, prepared wines, baked and cooked incredibly and also ran a public health service for our twin island as the Director of Public Health Nursing in the Ministry of Health. She loved good music: Nat King Cole, Al Green, Sparrow were up there among her favourites.
Born to Anastasia and Eddy Julien, in a little village in Penal, she was one of many siblings. Their home was loving but strict and they were staunchly Catholic. Their mother died when they were all very young and she was one of the older siblings who helped her father with keeping up the home.
